The next series of classes of Buddhism from the Ground Up begin on Sunday, January 19, 2014. Buddhism from the Ground Up is a home study program, augmented with once-a-month meetings on the third Sunday of the month. Its aim is to provide the experience and skills you need to bring the Buddha’s teaching into your life in a meaningful and useful way. Anyone interested in learning about Buddhism is welcome to attend – no experience required.
The Buddha’s teachings are meant to help us relieve suffering and achieve happiness, and an understanding of Buddhist psychology (the study of what the mind is) is an important aspect of the spiritual path. Investigating the mind by analyzing our thoughts and emotions is a crucial step to alleviating all manner of mental disturbances.
Buddhist Psychology, Vol. 3 of the Foundation of Buddhist Thought series by Geshe Tashi Tsering (Wisdom Publications) is the text we will use to investigate the relationship between our mind, the external material world and our experiences of happiness and unhappiness.
Lion’s Roar believes that education should nourish and develop our compassion, wisdom, kindness and happiness. All it takes is your curious and open mind to join and learn and practice the Buddha’s teachings.
Please check the calendar for dates, times and location.
